Altera to Deliver Breakthrough Power Solutions for FPGAs with Acquisition of Power Technology Innovator Enpirion

9 JUNE 2013

Altera Corporation announced it has signed a definitive merger agreement to acquire Enpirion, Inc., the industry’s leading provider of high-efficiency, integrated power conversion products known as PowerSoCs (power system-on-chip). The combination of Altera’s FPGAs with Enpirion’s PowerSoCs will offer customers higher performance, lower system power, higher reliability, smaller footprint and faster time-to-market.
“Power is increasingly a strategic choice for product differentiation in communications, computing and enterprise, and industrial applications,” said John Daane, president, CEO and chairman of Altera. “By adding a power group to Altera, we will bring even more value to system-level designs. Altera’s FPGA roadmap will be enhanced significantly with the addition of Enpirion’s power technologies.”
Ashraf Lotfi, founder and CEO of Enpirion, will serve as an Altera Fellow and chief techno­logist for Altera’s newly formed Power business unit.
“Joining Altera will enhance the Enpirion team’s ability to solve tough power challenges,” said Lotfi. “Our leadership in high-efficiency power conversion solutions complements Altera’s leadership in FPGAs. Enpirion employees have built an innovative company, and we look forward to building upon this foundation with Altera.”
